Seasonal Raptor Closures.


Come prepared to Jam! This area sports a couple bolted routes and many excellent cracks.

This is a shady north facing cliff on the south side of the Boise River.

Getting There 

From Warm Springs turn right onto highway 21 and cross overt the river. Go a short ways up the hill and turn left into the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. From the center hike along the dirt fire-road closest to the top of the cliff. Follow this for about 3/4 mile until it takes a sharp left. At this point leave the road and follow the single track trail to the base of the Green Acres wall.

In April 2014 a good portion of the Green Acres wall collapsed, unveiling this sweet finger crack. A few days later, I cleaned it out, pried off a few sketchy blocks and cleared off a belay platform, so now it's good to go.Climb the sweet finger crack, placing gear from tricky jams. At the top of the crack, traverse left across big but pumpy holds to The Garden's anchors. It's not very tall but it definitely packs a punch!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Idaho

Checked this out on a hot day in July, very worthwhile climbing, including some of the most fun routes I've done at the Cliffs.

This morning Eric and I watched the majority of the Green Acres wall collapse, sending a huge rockslide of boulders flying down the hill. It was pretty awesome to see but unfortunately, Fairway to Heaven, Piss and Vinegar, GW Loves Peanut Butter, and Pidgeon Holer are all completely destroyed. Which sucks because those were some good climbs! Kinda terrifying to think that I took a big whipper on a climb that collapsed a few months later...

Freakin' gnarly Trevor. Glad to hear that no one was nearby when those columns went down. I guess on a geologic time frame, even rock climbs are ephemeral. Awesome and terrifying for sure.

Yep, the geologic processes that helped create the cliff band also eventually brought it tumbling down.
